Maintenance Medication Program

If you have a condition that requires ongoing prescription medication, you will receive the lowest total copay possible by requesting that your doctor provide a prescription for a 90-day supply of your medication. You will have the option to fill this 90-day prescription at any CVS Pharmacy or through CVS Caremark mail order, helping you save time and money! If you wish to fill your maintenance prescription at a retail
store other than a CVS Pharmacy you will pay a higher copay after your third fill.

To better understand the Maintenance Mail Order Program and what it means for you, check out this short video.
